Symi Animal Welfare – Winter Feed Programme 2020

Symi Animal Welfare –  Winter Feed Programme  2020

I received a message from Symi Animal Welfare yesterday and was asked to share it to anyone on the island who looks after stray cats in the winter.

Dear Friends & Volunteers,
This year has been a very difficult one for many of us, especially those involved directly or indirectly in tourism, and for animal charities too, and SAW is no exception, with very little money from donations in 2020. With so few visitors to Symi this summer, most of our collection boxes are empty! So financing the WFP this Autumn will only be possible with some contribution from our usual volunteers. Those who wish to receive 1 sack of cat bix for their colony cats will be asked to contribute €10,00 towards the cost.
The price of each 18 kg sack is € 20.00. We think this is a small amount if you still wish to help the cats survive the winter months.
We will be collecting your contributions (Christina, Antonella or myself) during October, in the port area, but, so we can make the order, please let me know a.s.a.p.  either by email or Messenger, if you agree to help us with the WFP funding.

We thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Suzan, SAW.
